Cinnamon Toast Cannibalism

Since our massive Costco shopping experience, we've been eating like Royalty! ROYALTY I tell you! With giant packages of everything, it's been a total gorge-fest.

One of the treats we picked up was a MASSIVE box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's so big because it contains TWO packs of regular sized CTC. The Hubby and I are kinda obsessed with cereal.

We love it.

LOVE IT!

I'd eat it for every meal if it had enough nutritional content. Since the yummiest ones are full of sugar, I choose to eat bowls for dessert.

Last night, we finished up the unworthy small box and started in on the MEGABOX. As I was pouring my serving, I noticed a strange picture on the side.

I went back to the teeny box and this picture wasn't on it. Perhaps the box designers needed to fill more space because of the box's ENORMITY, but I'm left with the following question:

Why is one Cinnamon Toast Crunch character LICKING the other? 

By the expression on the lick-ee's face, s/he seems to be enjoying it but his/her eyes also show a trace of concern. The lick-er though, is having the time of his/her life. If they taste the same, why wouldn't s/he lick themselves?

Obviously, there's only one explanation; s/he's a cannibal.

Awesome.

Hahaha. First of all, I now have a HUGE craving for Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which is very dire, considering I was never allowed to eat sugar cereal as a child. Secondly, you have a very logical point when you say, "Why wouldn't s/he lick themselves?" It's a very sexual drawing, I think. The toast in the front is like, "Uhhh, I'm not sure if I'm ready for this, toast" and toast in the back is like, "Ohhh yeeaaahh." That answers your question of why they wouldn't lick themselves...

I know, I'm a perv.

@ K-Money - I agree, the CTC is acting like that scene in The Little Mermaid. You know, the one with the priest? The more I look at the box the creepier the lick-er becomes. I may have to email someone about it ;).

@ ANDREA!!! You're back!! I'm SO HAPPY! Unbelievable that there's ANOTHER piece of evidence that we share a brain. I'm heading over to your blog now!
